Patients with Achalasia suffer from difficulty eating or drinking due to relaxation failure of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). 

 

A minimally invasive procedure, helps to open these muscles to allow passage of solids and liquids from the esophagus into the stomach. 

The procedure tends to take about 90 minutes and it is done with small incisions, under general anesthesia. 

It provides definite treatment and it is a great alternative for failed endoscopic procedures.
